Coming up April 13th, the world famous Wembley Arena will be rocked Bollystyle by the great Pritam. You have heard, danced to and sang along to his outstanding compositions and songs on some of the best soundtracks of the movies including Life In a Metro, Barfi, Cocktail, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Jab We Met and so many more! Presented by Zee TV, the Zee Bollywood Rockstars concert featuring Pritam and many other fabulous performers promises to be a magical musical night.
Talking about how he feels about performing in London for the first time Pritam told Zee TV, “I have always wanted to play in London. I genuinely love the city. Given the large Bollywood music lovers there, I am eager to play in front of them and am looking forward to the show. To top that, it’s a dream venue like Wembley Arena. It’s a great feeling. Excited.”
Adding he feels honored to perform on the same stage as so many great acts such as Queen, U2, Meatloaf, Corrs, and Pink to name just a few, “It is one those arenas and venues you dream of playing in, as an aspiring young musician. The legacy and history makes it really exciting for me to perform there.”
The show is a presentation of Zee TV and Pritam says, “I have been associated with Zee from a long time. From Sa Re Ga Ma to Zee Cine Awards. And experiences have always been overwhelming. I am happy to be associated with Zee again. Looking forward to something equally exciting.”
Of course, the music director has an outstanding catalog of Bollywood soundtracks, “I have completed a decade in Bollywood and scored for 100 films with films like Dhoom 1, 2, 3, Gangster, Metro, Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Bhoolbhulaiya, Race, Billu Barber, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Barfi, Cocktail, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and more.” Adding with a smile, “By God’s grace I have more than enough number of songs to keep everybody entertained.”
Pritam would only reveal just a taste of what is to come when he rocks the stage at Wembley Arena. “I am planning to perform songs which has been appreciated by my audience over the last few years … So ya from the romantic ones to the peppy ones. From Sufi to Dance. From guitars to Dhol. Trying to incorporate a little bit of every thing. I will be doing a combination of the chartbusters and popular songs mixed with some of my favourites.”
Adding to the music of the night will be performances by a fabulous list of outstanding singers and Pritam gave a sneak peek into what audiences might hear: “Benny Dayal for example, is the most sought after singer nowadays. He has rocked last year with his rendition of my song ‘Badtameez Dil’ and ‘Lat Lag Gayi’. He will sing a lot more. Harshdeep Kaur needs no introduction to UK audiences, as she has performed there before. The magic of her deep voice will keep the stadium ringing. She is my favourite Sufi voice – no wonder everybody calls her Sufi ka Sultana… She will sing songs like ‘Kabeera’, ‘Jugni’ etc. Aditi Singh Sharma is a rockstar. She’s a performer to look forward to. She will definitely create “Dhoom” with her performance. Then there’s my friend Nikhil Paul George joining us who sang ‘Aashayein’ and ‘Main Kya Karoon’ in Barfi. He has an addictive voice. Shreeram Chandra actor/singer/winner of Idol has a magical voice. He sang songs in Yeh Jawaani for me. Soham Chakraborty has been a part of my band Metro since the Life in a Metro days.”
However, the music director did not want to give away too much. He wants you to come on April 13th and just experience the music, “About the full performance, let that be a surprise,” he said with a smile.
